concert at the TSB Bowl of Brooklands pavilion in New Plymouth on Saturday, January 9, are unbelievable. The photos on the Facebook profile of the L.A.B group seem from another era, when the public crowded into the front rows to appear at the final photo of the concert. But no, those are photographs from last Saturday. In fact, the news about the concert give more importance to an increase in the number of toilets than to a possible massive contagion of Covid-19. Other large venues such as the Spark Arena in Auckland, with a capacity for 12,000 attendees, have also opened their doors to concerts.

New Zealand celebrates concerts for thousands of people without social distance

The images of the more than 11,000 people who have attended the L.A.B, The Black Seeds, Mako Road, Bainley Wiley and Anna Coddington concert at the TSB Bowl of Brooklands pavilion in New Plymouth on Saturday, January 9, are unbelievable.

Although bands are purely local in concert and festival posters, foreign artists have canceled or postponed their performances in New Zealand, in the country there is a believe of a live music "boom" this summer with a very tight schedule of events.

That of New Zealand is a situation that causes great envy to much of the rest of the world that, despite having begun the vaccination process, does not expect to live concerts without social distance, masks or health tests, at the earliest, until well into 2022.

New Zealand is a model country when it comes to combating the coronavirus pandemic and now, in the middle of the southern summer, it gets the benefits: a full schedule of concerts and festivals without social distance, tests or masks, the only thing that is asked of the public is activate the Radar Covid-19 smartphone application and stay home in case you don't feel well.

With a population of about 5 million people, the country has only suffered 25 deaths and some 2,000 infections, figures that almost every European country multiplies in a single day. The closure of borders to international travelers and the mandatory quarantine last March have produced an unbeatable result, a strategy called "go hard, go early" that its admired Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern, has applied with great rigor. Now international travelers must do two weeks of mandatory quarantine.
